Happy Earth Day…

Ardent environmentalists hold some contempt at the idea of still having an annual, one-day celebration. As a friend who’s an environmental researcher told me last week, Earth Day for environmental professionals is like Easter for Christians: it’s a good excuse to have a party, but the real discipleship is supposed to happen all year. In other words, the eco roar that once captivated the world’s attention somehow turned into an annual whimper of corporate sponsorships and moving yet empty speeches about the future of our children. “It’s been reduced to planetary sound bites. It’s not about a single day, it’s about living green every day.”

It’s not so simple anymore. Being an environmentalist today calls for a whole new level of greener thinking
